A God Damn dead man would understand that if a minor league bus in any city took a real sharp right turn, a Zack McCalister would likely fall out. - Lead Pipe

Yeah, I didn't bother posting that here when it came up.

Truth: if Kyrie gets ball first Kobe might not get a bucket.

Sad Truth: Kyrie has been the best non-Olympic team US player at this camp yet this dumbass organization is still sending him to play in Summer League to potentially get hurt.

Yeah, really hoping they'll be stingy with his minutes in summer league.

Love that kid.

I'm hoping the thought process there is that they get Waiters, Zeller, and TT some minutes running with the kid just to get used to the princeton offense, and they're not legitimately hoping to get any real development value for Kyrie.

Remember, he didn't have any camp last year due to the strike. Now they can all start on the same page and learn the Pick/roll and pick/pop rhythm together.

I like the move.

Naw yall. Kyrie is already in the top ten PG world. Listen to what Kobe says at the end of that interview.

You protect that asset, you don't send it into war against fucking D-Leaguers. Especially after he just spent two weeks destroying the best US Team ever (troLOLllo).

YOu put that shit on ice.

(and that said, I would bet my life Kyrie asked to play, no way this was an FO decision they pushed on anyone)

Rumor has it Kyrie broke a bone in his hand, and it's now in a cast. Nobody credible has confirmed yet though, so take it FWIW.

Finally confirmed via MSB and Jason Lloyd. Broken hand suffered in SL practice, out 6-8 weeks, should be ready for training camp.
